The Next Tesla Gigafactory Could be in Canada

Tesla could build its next Gigafactory in Canada.

  • Elon Musk has hinted at a Canadian factory twice now

  • Talks with the province of Quebec are apparently underway

  • Mexico is still a possibility for this new plant

Tesla has opened multiple Gigafactories around the world in the last few years and it is apparently considering adding another one, possibly in Canada.

During the automaker’s shareholder meeting yesterday, Elon Musk hinted at the possibility of a Canadian Gigafactory for the second time this summer.

Indeed, the CEO reportedly answered an employee’s question about future factory sites by saying that the next Gigafactory will likely be built in Canada or Mexico.

Yesterday, Musk seemed to favour Canada after the crowd shouted a number of possible locations for the upcoming plant.

In addition, the company is apparently in talks with the Quebec government over a potential deal that could see the provincial government invest a multi-billion sum into the production of batteries for electric vehicles.

The province is trying to attract companies that make electric vehicles by promoting its renewable energy, which could help automakers achieve their carbon neutrality goals by lowering manufacturing emissions.

If Quebec is chosen to be the site of the next Tesla Gigafactory, it would mark the first time a production vehicle is made in the province since General Motors closed its Ste-Therese factory back in 2002.

No date has been announced for the construction of this future manufacturing facility, but Musk said that the current priority for Tesla in North America is to ramp up the production of the Texas Gigafactory, which opened in April of this year.

Nevertheless, the CEO said that an announcement concerning the possible Canadian factory would be made later this year.
